POLICE are appealing for information about a car which was found burnt out in Renfrewshire following a shooting in Glasgow.

The red Audi S4 TFSI Quattro, which was found burnt out in the car park of Clyde Muirshiel Country Park Visitor Centre in Lochwinnoch on Sunday, is believed to have been used in the attack of 29-year-old Jamie Barclay on Saturday.

A short time later, police were notified Mr Barclay had attended hospital with injuries caused by a firearm.

He remains in hospital and medical staff describe his condition as serious but stable.

Officers carrying out CCTV enquiries have confirmed the registration of the car believed to be involved is MJ14 ZFM.

Detective Inspector Jim Bradley, said: "We are now carrying out forensic enquiries on the burned out vehicle we have recovered, however we are appealing for information regarding its movements between Dykemuir Street and Muirshiel Country Park.

“The car would have been set on fire between 4pm on Saturday and 11.30 am on Sunday, it is a distinctive car with chrome wing mirrors and chrome surround on the windows. Do you remember seeing anything out of the ordinary in or near the visitor centre car park?

You may have dash-cam footage that can help us – particularly in Craigenbae Street, Dykemuir Street, Wallacewell Road or in the Muirshiel Country Park.
